  • Vermont History Center 60 Washington Street Barre, VT, 05641 United States (map)

Sponsored by the Montpelier Area Senior Center (MSAC), Vermont Genealogy Library, and VHS. Open to MSAC and Barre Area Senior Center Members

DNA tests have become very effective complements to traditional genealogical research and are sometimes the only way to resolve conflicting information or to break through a 'brick wall.' There are several types of DNA tests and several companies that offer them. To make a decision about which test to use - or which company - one needs a basic understanding of how they work. This class will provide all the information necessary to understand how DNA is tested, what it can and can not tell you about your ancestors and which test & company are the best answer for your genealogical question.
